New BAS course from ISA hits the road

"Great job! In my 40 years in the building automation industry, never in one place have I seen a course so complete with the connection to the major interacting systems. The understanding of these systems is crucial to be able to control them. You [ISA] have prepared this course at an excellent time, as we have many new folks coming into our building automation industry from the ISA, networking, and business worlds."
